I thought this was cool:


It is a Firefox extension which allows you to only run FOSS JavaScript
if you so chose. It has some kind of algorithm that distinguishes
between "trivial" and "nontrivial" JavaScript — the idea being to only
block JavaScript that constitutes a software program, rather than
navigation aids and effects. Includes whitelisting functionality. Will
also give a report explaining exactly what was blocked and why.

The extension is meant to address this issue:
